Festival Reviews

rockhudsonRock Hudson (1925–1985)

Born: November 17, 1925 in Winnetka, Illinois, USA
Died: October 2, 1985 (age 59) in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA

His legal name was Roy Fitzgerald. When meeting John F. Kennedy, the American president remarked: “They say all Fitzgeralds are related”, to which Hudson replied, “I guess that would make Ella happy”.

I also remember meeting Gary Cooper at a party. I was so impressed that I blurted out that all the stars I had met before had been terrific people. Cooper thought about it for a minute, then said, “Yes, I suppose we are, the ones who are on top. But watch out for the ones who haven’t quite made it, or are past it.” It was valuable advice.
